Not to carp, but Jamaica Pond isn't an overgrown goldfish bowl, so stop tossing koi in it

According to posters in the Jamaica Pond Facebook group, there are now at least two koi in Jamaica Pond, one orange and one white, and that's not a good thing because they can grow fat and sassy, as they eat and uproot underwater plants and contribute to algae blooms through their waste.

What is needed now are alligators from the sewers to eat the giant goldfish!

And maybe a panther or two to keep those gators in check.

When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

They just wait for the bus. The buses are heated.

And then end up in Lexington.

The "Lexington" link in that comment goes to a Wikipedia about Gerry Callahan; specifically, his joke about gorillas and METCO. Once again, Refugee displays his true nature.

Guilty as charged... I admit that to the little voices in my head, irony counts for everything.

But seriously, one cannot hear a reference to a gorilla waiting at a bus stop in Boston without remembering that godawful joke.

One can very easily refrain from giving an awful thing more exposure. That you didn't refrain says that you wanted to give it more exposure. There's no irony in that; it's just you.

Do you keep these on file, for days when contemporary racism just isn't enough?

Ashmont or Mattapan @Refugee.
This stuff really happened but no driver opened the door. Poor gorilla got tranked.

Aside from the racist crap, not sorry to see the show disappear. How many times can you review an about to topple over hamburger covered or stuffed with an egg, macaroni and cheese served in tiny cast iron skillets and restaurants with names where one does not know whether they are in a restaurant or hardware store?

Jamaica Pond is 68 acres and 53 feet deep. Those two Koi would need to get really fat and sassy to make any type of an impact in a body of water that large.
